Tshepo and Tshepang Mogoai play chess to smarten up.
The Goldreef City School’s Open took Pimville by surprise and saw the Knight Riders Chess Club (KRCC) of Diepkloof checkmate most of their opponents.
KRCC coach Linda Makhubela said, “The juniors can compete and play and have had the privilege to compete with chess players from all over the country.”
In the U9, Division Nosipho Chauke of the local club prevailed and won the number one spot when she won all of her five games hands down.
Chauke was preceded by Noluthando Ntshalintshali who came at number two after she only lost one game from her five games.
Nobuhle Mkhasibe may not have performed as she would’ve desired in the previous tournament she took part in, but this time around, the 6-year-old chess player managed to checkmate three opponents to come out on the third position.
